    Wow, you balanced out the sutter sp., Ap. and ISO perfectly to get that sky light perfect. Gorgeous exposure. :) It’s amazing how much that looks like the skeleton of a whale’s jaw. Awesome work, Mel.

  • Thanks so much Ḃḭṙḡḭṫṫä ∞!

    Sad and beautiful at the same time; a boat with a name like that is bound to come to a sticky end. ;) Lighting balance is a dream.

  • Cheers Roger! lol!

    It is a great wreck and wont always be there, so more dicky the better, i say!

  • This was shot back in 2008, and yeah, there’s a LOT less wreck there now :( Thanks Sue
